Firm: Hutson Gobble LLC
Number of years serving business owners: 21
Motivation to help business owners: To see their success. If my clients succeed, then I am doing my job well. I find great satisfaction in being able to add value to my clients’ business.
Obstacles you help entrepreneurs with: We help clients make sense of complex tax, financial and business decisions, allowing them to keep more of what they earn without undue risk through planning and documentation.
Best advice for small-business owners: Before making significant business decisions, consult your CPA/business adviser. It is best to know all the costs/benefits of the transaction before it occurs rather than to find out the consequences after.
Biggest mistake that you see business owners make: Not seeking professional advice. There are so many nuances in the tax law that a small-business owner can easily make a decision without realizing that the decision may cost them serious money.
